KINGS FAMILY RESTAURANT PRESENTS $10,000 CHECK TO THE MARIO LEMIEUX FOUNDATION
THE FUNDRAISING EFFORTS WILL CONTINUE INTO 2018
PITTSBURGH – October 23, 2017- Kings Family Restaurant announced their commitment and partnership with the Mario Lemieux Foundation in March of this year. Today, Kings is proud to present its first donation, $10,000, to the Foundation and its founder, Mario Lemieux. Kings donated a portion of its sales from every Kid’s Chicken Tender entrée purchased, April through September, to Austin’s Military Playrooms, an initiative of the Mario Lemieux Foundation.
Kings is celebrating 50 years in Western Pennsylvania November 1, and as part of its long-standing service, Kings will continue its fundraising efforts for the Foundation. For November, a portion of sales from its “Hat Trick Breakfast” will contribute to the next donation anticipated in first quarter of 2018.
The first Austin’s Military Playroom was donated to the Warrior Transition Unit at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in MD. The success of this playroom led to the creation a second playroom at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton in CA, and in 2015, a third playroom at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in NC. A fourth playroom is planned for 2018. Austin’s Military Playroom Project creates playrooms for military personnel and their children that provide comfort, warmth and love for these very special families.
